What's the best thing about writing for a living?

Justifying being nosey and a gossip, lying in, watching endless DVDs and calling it research, sitting round a large table with rubbery croissants just out of reach, and waiting for some talented actors to make the world in your head finally come alive.

- BBC Interview - Catherine Tregenna

Tell us a little bit about your writing routine.

Well I never believe those writers who say I get up at seven o'clock in the morning, put on my business suit, go to my office and work an eight hour day, stopping only for a cup of tea at lunch time.

I go for amount. I will write two thousand good words of prose, or five pages of comics, or five pages of screenplay in a working day. If I do that by lunch time then I can do what only writers can do and pop off to the cinema in the afternoons, which is the whole point of being a writer. It's what it's for. But if I don't manage to do it during the day I may even be up until the early hours hacking it out.

"- И ты ушел до того, как я дочитал до возвращения Гендальфа? - я немного приуныл, так как всегда гордился своим чтением этой части главы.
- Да. Я не хочу видеть, как ты плачешь от восторга, в очередной раз читая, - тут он заговорил торжественным тоном, передразнивая меня, - "волосы его блистали, как снег, глаза ярко светились из-под косматых бровей" и так далее. Да и вообще... не люблю, когда ты распускаешь нюни."

How to be creative :P

So you want to be more creative, in art, in business, whatever. Here are some tips that have worked for me over the years:

1. Ignore everybody.

2. The idea doesn’t have to be big. It just has to be yours.

3. Put the hours in.

4. If your biz plan depends on you suddenly being “discovered” by some big shot, your plan will probably fail.

5. You are responsible for your own experience.

6. Everyone is born creative; everyone is given a box of crayons in kindergarten.

7. Keep your day job.

8. Companies that squelch creativity can no longer compete with companies that champion creativity.

9. Everybody has their own private Mount Everest they were put on this earth to climb.

10. The more talented somebody is, the less they need the props.

11. Don’t try to stand out from the crowd; avoid crowds altogether.

12. If you accept the pain, it cannot hurt you.

13. Never compare your inside with somebody else’s outside.

14. Dying young is overrated.

15. The most important thing a creative person can learn professionally is where to draw the red line that separates what you are willing to do, and what you are not.

16. The world is changing.

17. Merit can be bought. Passion can’t.

18. Avoid the Watercooler Gang.

19. Sing in your own voice.

20. The choice of media is irrelevant.

21. Selling out is harder than it looks.

22. Nobody cares. Do it for yourself.

23. Worrying about “Commercial vs. Artistic” is a complete waste of time.

24. Don�t worry about finding inspiration. It comes eventually.

25. You have to find your own schtick.

26. Write from the heart.

27. The best way to get approval is not to need it.

28. Power is never given. Power is taken.

29. Whatever choice you make, The Devil gets his due eventually.

30. The hardest part of being creative is getting used to it.

31. Remain frugal.

32. Allow your work to age with you.

33. Being Poor Sucks.

34. Beware of turning hobbies into jobs.

35. Savor obscurity while it lasts.

36. Start blogging.

37. Meaning Scales, People Don’t.

37. When your dreams become reality, they are no longer your dreams.

ту
Прислонившись спиной к косяку дверного проема (двери, конечно же, нет, как и наличника), я стояла с книжкой в руках и читала вслух в течение примерно получаса.

"Послушай! Что есть этот мир? И все в нем? ИЛЛЮЗИИ, Ричард! Каждая частица его - иллюзии! Неужели ты этого не понимаешь?"

И я смеялась.

84 рубля на трамвай и метро, остальной путь пешком. Так мало стоит мое тихое счастье в уединении.

P.S. А еще там было тепло, играло радио и на полке была не дочитанная мною своевременно книга "Сон №9" с закладкой в виде ленты.
Еще совсе чуть-чуть осталось подождать.
